Through its Chairman  Archbishop  Dr Daniel Njagi , the Forum alleged its team was  keenly monitoring  the elections  process  and  its findings  were   that Ngirici had won and not Waiguru .

At  a hastily convened press conference  at the Star Wood  hotel , Kerugoya this morning , the  Forum said it was encouraging Ngirici to seek for legal redress given the elections were allegedly not free  and fair .

“Ngirici won in Ndia, Mwea , Gichugu and only  lost  in Kirinyaga Central with a small margin and  it’s along these lines that we strongly believe she has every reason to go to court  and seek for justice  of which we are sure will be served quickly ,”the Cleric said.

Waiguru was declared the winner   after she garnered a total  113 088 of votes against  Ngirici’s 105,677  .

But moments after this declaration by the area IEBC Manager Jane Gitonga , Ngirici raised a red  flag  and said she was  intending  to go to  court as what was announced did not reflect  the wishes of the electorate .

Yesterday while attending a  Sunday Service at the St Thomas  Cathedral  ,Kerugoya town , Ngirici claimed  the process was rigged and maintained she was leading and not what the IEBC  had  declared .

“We all shocked by the results the IEBC  announced  since it was not the reflection and aspirations of Kirinyaga people . We  are seeking for a court action to have the results declared null and void so that our people can  get a leader they had  settled  on ,”she claimed .

A prominent Nairobi based lawyer Ndegwa Njiru is said to have been consulted to take up the matter and  file  the petition.
